Winter Rye Now? Should I re-seed (FL -- no rain since seeding)?
I overseeded on a 6-month old stand of new bahiagrass pastures. Soil test said nothing was needed, but I really question it about my back pasture (they made me combine all of the pasture samples, but my back pasture was pine before we dug it up and disced and flattened it). My fronts are now decent rye at abotu 3" (planted Nov 1st). My back pasture is a strain to see anything at all--except the ungrown seeds. I've had the sprinklers on the fronts, but not the back. No horses on any (they're going crazy in the dirt paddocks, though!).
Suggestions, please? Advise? I've asked IFAS, but I keep getting the nastiest people, even when I go in person -- no one ever seems to have enough time to listen to the particulars of what I'm saying and no one understands (or cares to consider) the pine history at all.
Pull another soil sample - only from that pasture. If county Ag office won't process it - ask who will. My guess is it needs lime (and water for the seed) but I think you need to lime before you seed? Not certain about that last statement, hopefully someone in the know will answer.
